Cameras on ...please:)

Parents, we need your help!

Unless you there is a reason, please help us encourage your child to leave their cameras on during virtual learning. It is very difficult to teach, monitor engagement, and ensure learning is taking place when there are only black boxes on the screen instead of faces. Thank you in advance!!!
